Our school is taking part in Walk to School Week (16-20 May). The nationwide event is organised by
walking charity Living Streets and designed to help pupils experience first-hand the importance of
walking to school.


Children will be well on their way to reaching their recommended 60 minutes’ minimum of physical
activity per day before even reaching the school gates! Not only will it set them up for a positive day in
the classroom, but it will also help create healthy habits for life.


What do I need to do as a parent/carer? We would ask, if possible, to make arrangements so that
your child/children can travel actively to school on w/c 16 May, helping our school reduce congestion
and pollution around the school gates. Walking, wheeling, scooting and cycling all count! If you live far
away from school and need to drive or take public transport, try parking the car or hopping off the bus
ten minutes away and walking the rest of the journey.
